Recipe Ingredients for Almond Twist

250 ml skim milk, lukewarm
1 large egg
85 g caster sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Cardamom
7 g dried yeast
500 g white bread flour
75 g unsalted butter, at room temp
50 g unsalted butter
25 g caster sugar
25 g ground almonds

Recipe Directions for Almond Twist

  1. Warm the milk slightly. Crack the egg into a large mixing bowl and whisk in the milk a little at a time. Then whisk in the sugar, salt and cardamon.

  2. Combine in the flour and yeast too to form a dough and knead for 10 minutes, by hand or in a stand mixer.

  3. Leave in a covered bowl to rise until doubled, about 1 hour in a warm kitchen.

  4. Preheat the oven to 200˚C and line two baking trays with parchment paper.Tip the dough onto a work surface and roll out to a 50x30cm rectangle.

  5. Spread the softened butter over the whole surface of the dough.

  6. Over one side, spread filling ingredients. Fold over the other bare side of the pastry to sandwich the filling in the middle.

  7. Cut narrow strips, about 1.5cm wide, across the shortest edge of the pastry rectangle. Holding an end in each hand, twist in opposite directions , then coil up like a snail. Tuck the outside edge underneath and place on the prepared trays. Leave to proof for 10 minutes.

  8. Brush with a beaten egg and sprinkle with flaked almonds if using. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden and hollow sounding when tapped underneath (check your biggest ones)
